VPN features: Objectives for designing a virtual private network

Modern VPN design

To be workable, the features of a modern VPN should be secure, user-friendly and flexible enough to traverse the cloud for a variety of platforms.

Key design objectives when selecting VPN features must include the following:

  • Secure remote access for users anywhere, anytime
  • Easy setup, configuration, use and maintenance
  • Affordable for widespread corporate use
  • End-user friendly: There should be no obvious performance problems, no major usage hoops to jump through, no gotchas or other downsides to regular/frequent use.
